Setup Generator

Note: Using the setup generator is highly recommended if you are new to crypto mining

Stratum Configuration (Advanced Miners)

stratum+tcp:// CPU Mining
stratum+tcp:// GPU Mining
stratum+tcp:// High-End Multi GPU Mining
stratum+tcp:// CPU Mining - SSL
stratum+tcp:// GPU Mining - SSL
stratum+tcp:// High-End Multi GPU Mining - SSL

Login using your wallet address as username. An optional workername can be appended to your address separated by a dot character. Leave the password blank.


To mine directly to an exchange you need append your paymentId to your address separated by a hash sign.


SSL/TLS: To connect using SSL/TLS please add 100 to the respective port number. For ccminer, claymore and sgminer change the protocol from stratum+tcp:// to stratum+ssl://. For dstm's Miner change the protocol from stratum+tcp:// to ssl://. XMRig does not currently support SSL.

Windows Mining (Nvidia/AMD/CPU)

  • Download xmr-stak
  • Extract the archive and create pools.txt in a text-editor of your choice. Make sure to place the file into the same directory as the extracted miner.
  • Replace the contents of the file with:
 "pool_list" :
   {"pool_address" : "", "wallet_address" : "YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS", "rig_id" : "", "pool_password" : "", "use_nicehash" : false, "use_tls" : true, "tls_fingerprint" : "", "pool_weight" : 1 },

 "currency" : "monero7",
  • Replace YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS with your Monero wallet address. If you don't know your address, read this section first.
  • Save the file
  • Run xmr-stak.exe

Linux CPU Mining

  • Download XMRig 64-Bit
  • Extract the archive and open config.json in a text-editor of your choice
  • Replace the contents of the file with:
    "algo": "cryptonight",
    "av": 0,
    "background": false,
    "colors": true,
    "cpu-affinity": null,
    "donate-level": 2,
    "log-file": null,
    "max-cpu-usage": 75,
    "print-time": 60,
    "retries": 5,
    "retry-pause": 5,
    "safe": false,
    "syslog": false,
    "threads": null,
    "pools": [
        "url": "",
        "user": "YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS",
        "pass": "x",
        "keepalive": true,
        "nicehash": false
  • Replace YOUR_WALLET_ADDRESS with your Monero wallet address. If you don't know your address, read this section first.
  • To mine directly to an exchange you need append your paymentId to your address separated by a hash sign. Example: <WALLET ADDRESS>#<PAYMENT_ID>. Be advised that the payout threshold is much higher for payouts to exchanges due to the significantly increased transaction fees.
  • If you are mining on multiple machines/rigs, you can append an identifier of your choice to your wallet address seperated by a dot to make it easier to distinguish between your rigs when evaluating your results. Example: <WALLET ADDRESS>#<OPTIONAL PAYMENT_ID>.<OPTIONAL WORKERNAME>
  • The setting donate-level controls the percentage of your hash power XMRig donates to its developer. Feel free to adjust this to your liking.
  • Save the file
  • Run xmrig

Getting a Wallet

Before you can start to mine you need to create a wallet. Although Monero is an entirely digital asset, you still need a place to store them. This is done in a digital wallet. There are multiple methods to obtain a wallet which vary by ease of use and the security they provide.



MyMonero is an uncomplicated method to obtain a monero wallet. Convenience comes with a price of course. Even though this site is run by the creators of Monero, your private keys leave your computer which is a security concern.

Official Wallets

Official first-party Wallets for all major platforms are available from the Monero Website. These wallets are released and maintained by the Monero Team.

Paper Wallets

For long-term storage of Monero you should create a cold wallet using MoneroAddress or similar. A paper wallet is extremely secure if you guard your private key by storing it in a password vault such as KeePass or LastPass or printing it out and depositing the sheet in a real bank vault.

Registering with an exchange

There are multiple digital currency exchanges you can register with. Registering with an exchange allows you to create a wallet on the exchange for every currency the exchange supports. Registering with an exchange is probably the most convenient way to obtain a wallet. Unfortunately it is also the least secure one. Exchanges have been hacked in the past!

Popular exchanges supporting Monero are: Bittrex, Poloniex, Kraken, Bitfinex and HitBTC.
